Focus on Your Business. NOT on Your Servers.

Do IT staff limitations, sluggish server performance, and fears of possible data loss sound all too familiar?  Brookwood School experienced similar challenges until they decided to take actions to turn over its technology support to an Intel® solution provider. Brookwood School got more desktop and server performance, reduced expenditures, and lowered their ongoing energy costs for a rapid Return on their Investment (ROI.)

Remember my trip to Georgia and my visit to the school from last month? Well, now I can share more about the impressive results they obtained. Read the attached case study and watch this short video to learn more.

Their story of increased performance and real savings may just inspire you to rethink your technology environment with a server refresh or even transition to managed services. And with the recent launch of the next generation of intelligent server processors — the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series — there’s even more to be excited about. This new processor launch makes now a great time to make a change.

These processors combine industry-leading energy efficiency with intelligent performance that adapts to your workload to deliver some serious improvements from previous processor generations:

  • up to 15 times the performance of a 2 socket single-core server
  • up to 95% lower energy costs

So, if you’re ready to put more intelligence in your server room (or closet), talk to your talk to your Intel® IT solutions provider ( get ready for great things!
